Monument decorated with tiling that resembles Star of David demolished due to mounting criticism
The Tehran Municipality has demolished the dome in the city’s central square on Tuesday due to criticism that the monument featured Stars of David, which are associated with Judaism.
The Iranian news agency Fars reported that “part of the dome in Revolution Square, which resembles the symbol of the Zionist regime, has been destroyed by municipality workers.”
According to the report, the ornamental tiling that adorned the dome has been removed, leaving it bare. It is unclear whether the dome is to be overlaid again with more appropriately-themed tiling.
